Geraint Thomas out of Tour de France with suspected broken collarbone

Froome suffered a mechanical problem on the Mont du Chat, the last of three hors categorie climbs on the day, and as the three-time Tour victor was calling for the team auto Aru attacked in a clear breach of cycling's protocol.

Australian Richie Porte is out of the Tour de France after he crashed heavily during a high-speed descent during the ninth stage on Sunday.

Colombian Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac) won Sunday's dramatic stage, a 181.5-kilometre route from Nantua to Chambéry.

It was a fourth crash of the race for Thomas, who spent four days in the yellow jersey after winning the opening time trial in Düsseldorf last weekend.

"He was conscious, it's reassuring, he is being transferred to the hospital", race doctor Florence Pommery said of Porte.

Welshman Thomas, who was second overall at the start of the stage, has a suspected broken collarbone, according to the Tour's official website.

Porte crashed on the descent from the Mont du Chat, the last of the day's big climbs, as he slid off the inside of corner and was violently flung across the road, with Quick Step Floors rider Dan Martin unable to avoid him.

Three riders from the day's break - Movistar's Jesus Herrada plus Alexey Lutsenko and Bakhtiyar Kozhatayev of Astana - had crashed on the same corner as Thomas minutes before the peloton arrived.

A very hard day on the mountains saw Froome need a bike change but recover to take a commanding lead in the Tour as Porte and Thomas crashed violently.

Astana's Fabio Aru moves to second overall and was involved in one of the day's main talking points when he attacked Froome on the ascent of the Mont du Chat just as the race leader raised his arm to signal a mechanical problem.

Twice former victor Alberto Contador was one of the big losers on the day from the 181.5km stage from Nantua to Chambery.
